The above image describes the realities of life. When we are -
under 30s - We have lots of free time, very good health, but not enough money
30s to 50s - We have free time, health, and money in almost equal amounts
after our 50s - We have plenty of free time and money, but not so great health
As said earlier, we spend 1/3 of our “career stage” at work, and we do this mainly for money. The longer we work, the more skills we get, so the more money we make. However, our best years also happen during that career phase, and this is when we can get the most of the experiences that will inevitably compound in time. Do you want to spend all your career phase and miss out on all the experiences you can get when you’re young and healthy?
Sometimes, work means everything to us and we forget to live our lives and gain new experiences. By the time we do decide to enjoy, our health is not on our side. So take time to enjoy life as well.
A not so common knowledge is that staying healthy is probably the best gift you can give to your (grand) kids, and believe it or not, even more than giving them an inheritance.
Staying healthy is very important as we grow older. We don’t want our future generations to be worried about us. Investing in our health is really important. Top tips -
- Eat healthy
- Sleep well
